I am sure this has been mentioned before, but the Internet Movie Car Database website has a comprehensive list of TV shows and movies that have had Riviera's in them:

While this is not a 100% complete list of Riviera's in motion pictures, it does contain 22 pages of listings!

Classic Car Turn and Tail Light Socket Restoration.

 

Here's a fix for a problem that you'll more than likely run across at sometime during the ownership or acquisition of your Riviera.  It's a link to a YouTube video that shows how to repair the old brittle wiring that goes into the turn signal/parking lamps.  The video does feature a Riviera but it is probably applicable to any older car.

One of the things I try & do first.  IF the wires are stuck to the boot spray them with a little carb. cleaner as this will soften the rubber & break the contact loose.

Next if the wires are now a lttle loose & the springs have some resistance when pushed in I put a little dot of solder on the end of the bulb to bluid it up. IF you added too much just file it down until the bulb will be seated.

This may save the time to cut & splice wires, etc.

Just another way to maybe accomplish the same outcome.
